Wolff believes more European races will be added to calendar

The Australian Grand Prix has been pushed back and Imola has once again been added to the Formula 1 schedule. With the coronavirus pandemic still impacting countries across the globe, more European dates may offer the series a solution.

The 2021 Formula 1 calendar has already undergone some changes, and you can expect some more if Mercedes boss Toto Wolff's words are anything to go by.

Last year's calendar was turned upside down due to the coronavirus pandemic, with several European tracks added to make up for cancellations around the world. Imola, Nurburgring and Turkey all made returns, while Portimao and Mugello hosted events for the first time.

That trend looks set to continue in 2021 as Imola has once again been added, while rumours continue to swirl that Portimao will be brought back as well. When asked about Nurburgring, Wolff hinted that more European dates will be added.

"I have a good history at the Nurburgring and I think we'll get even more European races this year anyway," Wolff told RTL.

With Canada recently introducing stricter travel restrictions to prevent the spread of new coronavirus variants, it will be interesting to see how many changes, if any, are made to the Formula 1 calendar.

As things stand, the season will begin in Bahrain on March 28.
